Unique Aspects and Challenges of Project

The Brandon Shores AQCS project was a large fast-paced industrial project at a power generation plant with work in multiple buildings including a switchyard and electrical building. This was a very intricate project; a great deal of coordination between the trades had been required as well as a good working relationship with the Construction Management team. There was a large volume of quality control and tracking paperwork generated on a daily basis. Our project management team and strong on-site supervision enabled constant coordination with the other trades and the general contractor. Enterprise demonstrated strong team dynamics in its field personnel by coping with the changing demands of the job and the growing scope while maintaining a fast working pace. Due to the company’s size, Enterprise Electric Company was able to provide adequate manpower to keep the project moving.
